In California, the primary difference between a trust and a will is that a trust avoids Probate Court. If you only have a will, your assets will likely be subject to court administration after your death or during a period of incapacity. A trust allows you to avoid California Probate Court. Probate Court is very time-consuming and expensive. If you own real estate, have minor children or have other significant assets, a trust is your best option for avoiding court.
